Orange Chocolate Cake with Slivered Almonds and Warm Orange Syrup
Orange chocolate cake
Orange goes with chocolate like Abbott with Costello.
The orange gives chocolate a delicious flavour, and is one of my favourites.
In this recipe, I have included slivered almonds to give it a bit of crunch. The cake can be heated very slightly in the microwave if it is not eaten in one go, or it could of course be eaten cold.
: 15 minutes
: 35 minutes
: 8 - 10 servings
75 g slivered almonds
triple chocolate muffin mixture
1 cup sugar
Preheat the oven to 170° fan forced, or 190° ordinary oven.
Line a 20 cm cake tin with baking paper.
Grate a teaspoon of zest from one of the oranges, and then set aside some strips for decoration from another.
Using an electric juicer if possible, juice the oranges until you have 1½ cups of orange juice.
Check the instructions on your muffin mixture and where it uses water or milk, add ¾ of a cup of the orange juice instead.
Mix the muffin mixture in a bowl. Add the slivered almonds (these can be cut smaller if you wish), and the grated orange zest.
Put this mixture into your prepared cake tin.
Bake for about 30 minutes, or until a skewer comes out fairly clean.
Take the cake out of the oven, and allow it to cool for a while. Then take it out of the tin.
While this is cooling, combine the sugar and the rest of the ¾ cup of orange juice in a small pan.
Bring it to the boil, simmer and stir a few times until it has reduced and thickened slightly.
Add the orange strips to the cake for decoration.
Spoon the orange sauce over the cake, or do this to each individual slice of cake as I did - this allows visitors to put as much or as little on as they want.
Do not cut large pieces, as it is a very rich, scrumptious cake!
